Do Not Let Age-Related Macular Degeneration Sneak Up on You
Age-related macular degeneration (also known as AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss among Canadians. It becomes progressively worse over time, causing cumulative permanent vision loss as it goes. Because AMD does not typically present any other symptoms, patients often do not even realise anything is wrong until they have already lost a significant portion of their vision.
By educating yourself on AMD and its effects, you can take an active role in preparing yourself and potentially prevent this devastating disease.
